As suggested in comment 11 I am going to resolve this as WONTFIX.

My reasons are:
- any change to use T-E is as likely or more likely to cause breakage
- patchy browser support means another handful of options would be required to
give sys admins a reasonable chance of configuring a working configuration
compatible with users and their combination of proxies and/or caches
- I believe the complexity this would add to the critical path isn't worth the

In my view the tipping point will be when IE supports T-E whether or not it
advertises support for it. At that point I would be all for switching to the
spec compliant way of doing compression.
